The Misfits, Ween, and Death Cab for Cutie are set to headline the 2016 Riot Fest and Carnival, with Morrissey joining the bill for the festival’s Chicago stopover. Other performers include Fitz and the Tantrums, NOFX, Bad Religion, The Hold Steady, Jake Bugg and Diarrhea Planet. The two festivals will serve as Motion City Soundtrack’s final shows, with their Chicago performance bringing the band’s 19 year career to a close.
The Denver festival will feature many of the same artists, with the addition of exclusive performances by Sleater-Kinney, Against Me!, Sleigh Bells, Wolf Parade, Diet Cig and Tyler, the Creator. Additional lineup information for both Chicago and Denver will be announced in coming weeks. Full lineups are listed below.
The 2016 Riot Fest and Carnival events will be held September 2-4 at the National Western Complex in Denver and September 22-24 at Chicago’s Douglas Park.
